Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. —Leo Buscaglia
Do you ever find yourself worrying about things?
I really don’t think things are going to work out the way I need them.
I am never going to be able to get all of this work done.
Why hasn’t he called me back yet?
I think I have really blown it this time and don’t have enough money to pay the bills.
Worrying used to definitely be one of my issues and the crazy things was I knew it wasn’t doing anything good for me. Somehow though I would continually fall into the worry trap time and time again.
But, then something finally clicked. I realized I needed to do whatever I could to break the bad habit of worrying. And, of course I want you to join me. This is definitely one of those bad habits we’ve got to get rid of if we are really going to take advantage of the possibility of today (and every today that follows).
So, how about this? If there is something we can do about whatever it is we are worried about, we’ll do it. But, if there isn’t, then we’ve got to find the quickest escape route out of the worrying Infinite Loop.
No More Wasted Time Worrying
The best way to create the future we want is not by allowing our minds to play games on us and get us to continually focus on all the worse case scenarios. Worrying really just works against us and weighs us down.
Instead of wasting your time worrying, why not use the day the best way you can and keep your good energy flowing? Why not do those things that are actually going to get you to where you want to be?
Don’t waste your time worrying about not getting enough work done. Instead, focus on doing the work in front of you in the best way possible and getting done what you can.
Don’t waste your time worrying about not being able to pay your bills. Do things today that will set you up to actually be able to pay your bills – create a budget or put together a plan to get out of debt.
Don’t waste your time worrying about why he isn’t calling you. Use your time to focus on enjoying the day and the people around you.
It’s like one of my favorite quotes by Ralph Marston explains, “What we do today improves all of our tomorrows.” Let’s not waste today away worrying. There are too many other good things out there just waiting for us.
The Possibility of Today:
1. Trust the way things unfold. Remind yourself that everything is ultimately going to be okay. Granted everything may not happen exactly as planned, but in one way or another, it is all unfolding just as it’s meant to. You have to believe that truth and trust that if you do everything you can today, things will work out tomorrow.
2. If worries surface, don’t try to suppress them or pretend they aren’t there. Let them rise to the surface. If there is something you can do about whatever you are worried about, do it. If not, then focus on doing whatever is in front of you in the best way possible. Don’t feed the worries with your attention.
Live Today Better than Yesterday
